French President’s popularity drops sharply

A new opinion poll shows that French President Emmanuel Macron’s approval rating has fallen to below 50 percent, its lowest level since last October.

The results of the survey by Le Journal du Dimanche, published on Sunday revealed that only 44 percent of the respondents approved of Macron’s performance.

The French government earlier this month announced plans to shake up the country’s costly civil service and modernize the public sector despite opposition. France already has one of the highest public spending ratios in the world.

French Budget Minister Gerald Darmanin said a plan to reduce government employees could be a possible move.
